My long awaited and delayed birthday present from 2013 was fulfilled last week. I had a wonderful meal with my wife at this intimate restaurant. The service was outstanding, unrushed and personal. The meal was exquisite. Entree of Witloof salad played off the bitter and sweet with pears and endive, with aged Gouda providing the depth of flavor. My entree... More

We've been to The Pear Tree several times with friends and it never fails to impress. Wonderful presentation, excellent service combined with an unequalled wine list makes this a "must visit". Everyone I have recommended to The Pear Tree has been pleased.

Enjoying one of the last sunny days, we had decided to go out for dinner. This restaurant definitely exceeded our expectations. Service was excellent from the minute we entered and throughout the dinner service. It was not rushed, special utensils were added for each serving, water replenished and we were asked about each dish after it was received to ensure... More

Have been here many times over the years, but not for a long time. So pleased to see the owner's smile as I arrived, and equally pleased to see that the menu still includes favourites like lamb shank and creme brûlée. The pea shoots served as veg haven't changed either - love them! Our family enjoyed their choices of trout... More

We decided to use one of our Groupons and try The Pear Tree, which had some quite good reviews. In my experience, restaurant Groupons, especially for the 'fine dining' establishments, do not turn out well (for example, our Groupon at C Restaurant in Vancouver). However, this experience was amazing! We had the Canadian 5-course tasting menu, and opted to spend... More

Celebrating a special occasion with my niece, The Pear Tree was the right place to go. A lovely contemporary decor set the stage, knowledgable and pleasant staff waited on our table, and the food was beautifully prepared, delicious and served in a very timely manner. A creative menu, with delightful unexpected "pear" touches! Free parking around the corner.

From the outside this looks like an unprepossessing restaurant in Burnaby, part of metropolitan Vancouver. However once you are inside the decor is high quality modern. The best part is however the food. The menu is short and the better for that. The food we had was faultless both in taste and presentation. I had the tomato soup followed by... More

after reading great reviews (especially from 'where chefs eat') I had high hopes for The Pear Tree the experience far exceeded my expectations, from the phone call regarding our booking from Scott to a delightful greeting and sublime pear cocktail on arrival started with the outstanding prawn cappuccino, then the most amazing beef tenderloin followed by poached pears with lavender...

Average dining experience. Menu is somewhat limited, however, their wine list is impressive. Prices are comparable with the better restaurants in Downtown Vancouver, but the Burnaby restaurant offers nothing special. Service was great.

Had dinner there last night. Started off with scallops in a bacon risotto as an hors d'ouvre,, with perfectly baked chicken as the main course, and ended with a dish of Stilton cheese and candied walnuts. That and a nice white BC wine is about as good as life gets! The staff and service was exceptional making for a memorable... More
